Cat vs. cop: Patient police officer has a run-in with an affectionate kitty

November 23, 2009 |  2:18 pm

A black cat showed affection by crawling up and down a Texas police officer in a friendly display captured on the patrol car's dashcam.

Taylor police Officer Keith Urban is seen being patient with the cat, whose image was captured during a recent traffic stop, then finally gently booting the kitty away.

The Taylor Daily Press reports Urban had pulled over an SUV in the driveway of a farm lot. The video shows the cat scampering up and down on Urban, making its way to the officer's shoulders.

Police Chief Jeff Straub says Urban never mentioned the feline encounter until he became concerned that the cat might have been injured when they parted ways.

Straub says the video shows "incredible patience on the part of the officer."

The collar-wearing cat fled.

Taylor is about 30 miles northeast of Austin.
